BALLSTON SPA — Ballston Spa National Bank (BSNB), in cooperation with the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York, is hosting its 16th contactless drive-thru food pantry on Tuesday, Sept. 28 beginning at 9 a.m. The event, which will be held at the Bank’s corporate offices located at 990 State Route 67 in Ballston Spa, is open to area families and individuals in need of food assistance. Patrons will receive food on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last.

Thanks to the Regional Food Bank, an anticipated 18,000 pounds of food will be distributed by BSNB volunteers at the event. Items to be distributed include fresh produce, dairy, frozen meats and non-perishable food items. 

Since the spring of 2020, food pantries hosted by BSNB have distributed 270,000 pounds of food and benefitted nearly 14,000 people within Albany and Saratoga counties. 

In addition to volunteer support, a series of matching campaigns initiated by the bank have already generated donations from community members totaling $34,000. Coupled with $75,000 in support from BSNB, the Regional Food Bank has received more than $109,000 to date to help those challenged with food insecurity in the region.
